Origins Available: English-Alt, English


The name Stansfeld was brought to England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Stansfeld family lived in Yorkshire. Checking further we found the name was derived from the Old English "stan," meaning "stony," and "feld," meaning "field."

Stansfeld Early Origins



The surname Stansfeld was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat from very early times where they were Lords of the manor of Stansfield and held that village which contained two churches and scattered moorland houses which were granted by Duke William,of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.
